ebook: What to do when someone dies – our practical guide

What to do when someone dies.

In this publication we provide a detailed and practical guide on what to do when someone dies.

We cover what to do within the emotional and stressful hours that immediately follow a death. We then follow through to what to expect, and what to do, over the coming days, week and months.

Over 40 pages we answer the nuts and bolts questions like: Do you need to phone the police? Who else do you need to notify? How do you deal with organ donation? Who pays for the funeral, and who has the final say as to what happens to the body? Do you need to apply for probate of the Will, and when can property be dealt with?

  • Our lawyers work as a team, so someone will always be available to answer your questions, or point you in the right direction. You will also benefit from a range of perspectives and experience.
  • One of our key goals is to pass on as much knowledge as we can, so you can make your own informed decisions. We want to make you truly independent.
  • We only do what we're good at. You can be confident that we know what we're doing and won't pass on the cost of our learning.
  • For advice and documents, we provide a fixed or capped quote so you don’t take price risk. If you're in a dispute, we'll map out the process and costs so you know what to expect.
  • We're not in this game for our egos. We're in it for a front row seat to witness your success.
